, as you say, we had the pakistani prime minister mr. sharif, in washington meeting president obama. one of the issues they discussed was drones. the pakistani government has very vocally opposed the drone campaign even though there are many indications that in private they have approved at least some of these strikes. there's also been a lot of attention recently from human rights groups about civilian casualties. the u.s. government claims that the drone campaign is extremely accurate, has killed very few people, but amnesty international brought out a report last week which suggested that in one instance a 67-year-old grandmother was killed. in another, 18 laborers were accidentally killed as they waited to take a meal at the end of the day. so it's a very contentious program but for the c.i.a. this is certainly -- or for the american government, rather, this is a way to show the campaign can also be extremely accurate and can take out people who are a danger not only to the united states but also to pakistan. >> woodruff: so in terms of knowing whether the government of pakistan woul
. >> reporter: toward the end of the hearing, the white house released a statement saying president obama has complete confidence in secretary sebelius. >> ifill: we'll hear some of what the president had to say today about the health care roll-out, right after the news summary. the federal reserve announced today it's keeping short-term interest rates at a record low, and continuing its stimulus efforts for now. but, the central bank did not repeat last month's warning that higher mortgage rates could hurt economic growth. the statement made no reference to the economic impact of last month's 16-day government shutdown. wall street took those omissions the dow jones industrial average lost 61 points to close at 15,618. the nasdaq fell more than 21 points to close at 3,930. house and senate negotiators opened budget talks today aimed at easing automatic, across-the- board spending cuts. the two budget committee chairs- - republican congressman paul ryan and democratic senator patty murray said they hoped to get a deal, but the prospect of raising taxes remains a sticking point. >> simply taki
said president obama was briefed about the effort in 2010, much earlier than previously reported. the nsa denied mr. obama was briefed that far back. while at the white house spokesman jay carney said the president recognizes the need for additional constraints on gathering and using intelligence. >> and we're also reviewing these programs because the president believes it's very important that even as they look to keep america and americans safe, that they do so in a way that reflects the sincere concerns about privacy that americans have and that our allies have. >> back in berlin germany's interior minister would not rule out expelling u.s. diplomats. >> already in july i said during my talks in washington that it would be absolutely unbearable for us if german law was broken on german ground. now it turns out that this was the case. >> reporter: which made it nearly certain that the fallout is far from over and that difficult talks lie ahead. to that end a delegation of u.s. lawmakers plans to journey to brussels soon. >> ifill: we'll have more on how intelligence-gathering i
bombshell, partly denied by the obama administration, appears in the "washington post." it says u.s. intelligence agencies have gained access to hundreds of millions of google and yahoo user accounts by secretly tapping into company data centers. late today, six top tech companies-- yahoo, google, aol, apple, microsoft and facebook-- sent a letter to congress, calling for enhanced privacy protections. barton gellman broke the story for "the washington post." welcome, bart gellman, how are you? welcome to the newshour. what is the difference between what you're reporting that happened and what the white house and the administration is pushing back at and saying didn't happen? >> well, there have been several versions of it but so far they have not denied any of the facts stated in the story. yesterday general alexander, the head of the n.s.a., denied that the n.s.a. is tapping into the servers or databases or data centers of google and yahoo! that's not what we said. what we said is they're tapping into the that's between data center here and the data center there. so they're captu
president obama has broken his promise that americans would be able to keep their existing health plans if they wanted them. ways and means committee chairman dave camp bore in on that point. >> this man wrote he and said "my wife has been recently informed by her insurance carrier that her health care policy does not comply with the affordable care act. now we must purchase a new policy to get the same coverage at an 18% increase in our premium. so what happened to the "if you like your insurance you can keep it" question? >> now if, in fact, the issuer has decided to change the plan, didn't have to, but plans were grandfathered in in 2010 and if they offer new plans they have to come in to the requirements of the affordable care act. so what i wouldel that individual is if their carrier is telling them they're changing the plan and they're offering an increase, that they would need to go take a look at what's available in their state and in their market which is certainly something that's available to them through the exchange. >> reporter: democrats have joined in criticizing the hea
arabia's unhappiness with the obama administration burst into full flower as we recall a couple of weeks ago with blind quotes and attributed quote to its intelligence chief voicing such displeasure over the u.s. what they see as president obama's flip-flop on whether or not to strike syria over chemical weapons, for one. and two, it's now very vigorous pursuit of negotiations with iran. so for saudi t is really all about the big struggle for power in the region between itself and iran. and there's definitely a doubt about the steadfastness of the u.s.. >> ifill: so is it real anger or diplomatic anger? >> that's much debated. there is real anger on the issues and you heard that from the foreign minister today, who really ticked them off. and he said at one point there are ticking time bombs that cannot just be managed and managed endlessly. about syria and iran. but i'm reliably told that the sawed saudies despite the threats in the earlier stories, they don't plan to try to totally go-it-alone in funding and giving arms to rebels in syriament because they think only the u.s. actually h
